Statement as of 9:59 AM CDT on May 01, 2016

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on May 01, 2016


... High rip current risk remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this
evening...

... Minor tidal overwash today...

* coastal flooding... tides will run a foot or more above predicted
levels this weekend on the Lower Texas coast. At times of high
tide... from late this morning through early this afternoon... water
will reach the dunes at unimproved public beaches on South Padre
Island north through Kenedy County.

* Rip currents... long period swells will bring dangerous
longshore and rip currents to all beaches today.

* Timing... tidal run up: 10 am through 3 PM today. Rip and
longshore currents: through today.

* Impacts... for tidal run up and overwash: water into the dunes
from beach access 4 northward will make driving difficult to
impossible at and around times of high tide today... 1227 PM.
For rip currents: hot and generally sunny weather this weekend
will bring large crowds to South Padre Island and increase the
danger for poor swimmers who are not equipped to enter the water
safely.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip and longshore currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol
flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

Poor swimmers should remain in water to knee height... and average
swimmers to waist height. All other swimmers should enter the
water with a flotation device such as a life Vest... boogie
board... or kick board with a safety rope.
